    Best Money Spent Ever!
    They were excellent from beginning to end. I can't believe how much of the work was done for the $150 service fee. Already from the 4 hours they were in my house I felt a huge improvement. They were friendly and explained everything they were doing. They were not annoyed and did not act uncomfortable when i followed them around the entire time watching and learning. I highly recommend you have them check your home!!!!

    Bob was wonderful to work with when it came to choosing exactly the path to take taking our house "green" and becoming more energy efficient! It is nice to find a contractor so knowledgeable!

    Bob and his crew worked around bad weather to complete the job in just 2 full days! There is a measurable difference in the warmth of our house. The crew did a great cleanup job, and replaced our siding (in the dead of winter) without any breakage.

Q&A

As a certified BPI (Building Performance Institute) Building Analyst, I have had training in BPI’s rigorous house-as-a-system approach and kept conscientiously up-to-date on certification (BPI requires Building Analysts to be re-certified every three years).

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure they have the certifications and the training they say they have. Check them out!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Some of the upgrades we recommend will make little difference in the heating bill, but make an enormous difference in comfort. Payback, or return on investment for most of the retrofit insulation and air-sealing jobs we do is under 4 years.
